Temps in the 70's, sunny with high thin clouds, steady breeze.
Dry trails very easy to traverse, parts of Tasajilla Flats has recently been groomed. Lots of "shrub birds" out signing for mates. Saw my first group of Meadowlarks near the parking area! Grass and other ground cover plants are coming up all over the park and the numerous Bee Brush plants have greens leaves but no smell yet. Even more agarita bushes are blooming and scenting the air.
There were hikers and a few mountain bikers enjoying the warm weather and the trails. Not much else going on - it was a nice hike!
Water, shade, info kiosk and toilets available at Playground parking area.
